Over the centuries, Saint Anthony of Padua has been acclaimed as a great example of holiness through countless works of art, sculpture and books. Many Catholics, and even non-Catholics, think of Saint Anthony as the first one to turn to when something is lost. Yet amid this widespread veneration and devotion, we may miss the story of a man who began his life like all of us. This film reveals the journey of Fernando Martins de Bulhões, a 13th century Christian whom we know today as Saint Anthony.

As we encounter his humanity, we find someone we can relate to, someone who struggled in life, someone we could have easily called a friend. Shot on historic locations in Portugal and Italy, Finding St. Anthony: A Story of Loss + Light is a documentary film that focuses on the experiences of Fernando (Anthony) in his search for the life God is calling him to lead.
